Hey there!Have you made your move yet? My name is Kym, I live in Russellville, AL but I am originally from Massachusetts. Russellville is about 45 minutes out of Huntsville. I don't know of any Montessori schools, my son is only 2 but I wanted to introduce myself and say hello since it can be hard to find other hippie mamas in the area. You'll probably fare better in that department in Huntsville than I do out here though. What do you think of Alabama so far?
An amazing store called Pearly Gates just off Bob White parkway(I think) is full of everythiing you'd need for herbal care and natural foods.
I'm definitely going to hunt down all hippie haunts...herbal stores, etc. I did walk around EarthFare the other day when I was in town....sigh...I love EarthFare...just wish it wasn't so darn expensive to be a hippie! LOL
Definitely check out A Nurturing Moment! And pick up a copy of Valley Babies, even if you don't have a baby, there is a handy resource guide in there.
I co-lead our local Attachment Parenting International group. We have lots of events this month, pm me if your interested and/or look for our group on facebook and/or meetup.
I would love to make friends with some other earth mamas in the HSV area! My husband is a fireman so I am stuck with a very high needs baby for long stretches and most of my girlfriends do not have babies (and don't want them!) so I could seriously use some mamas! I am a native Huntsvillian and know all the great spots for those of us that live a more natural lifestyle and like to support local folks. And if anyone knows of some groups, I would love to be informed!
